that this is their guy and force them down america's wrote. i think that you will see after tomorrow obama's numbers will probably get even stronger. it's a shame they did this to us but if we had a strong candidate like ron paul obama wouldn't be able to stand on the stage with him. >> host: it's a shame they wouldn't let other candidates into the debate. a true disservice to the american people. we are also getting comments coming on facebook. tim says you bet, he plans to watch. a good debate brings out the good or bad given the right questions on who stumbles. connie says may be, probably. this could be good. i'm voting for obama. and janic says it will not be obama and romney it will be obama coordinating with the media attack in romney for hours. the candidate of dallas texas, independent collar. what is your take? >> caller: its come line restricted as an independent thinker, and my thought is i'm going to watch the debate probably when i get off of work, but my thought is this: when is the country going to wake up and start losing american lives and the whole middle east is ridiculous. it is

national numbers out today on the presidential race. quinnipiac university has president obama leading mitt romney 49% to 45%. that lead is all about the gender gap. in the poll, the president leads romney by 18 points among women. while romney holds a 10-point advantage among men. peter brown is assistant director of the quinnipiac university polling center and joins us from washington, d.c. can you tell from the polling what specifically feeds into the gender gap? are women happier with president obama or is this just an anti-romney vote? >> historically, women are more likely to be democrat, men republican. women see a greater role for government overall. not a single here or there, but overall. they are less tax averse than men tend to be. men tend to be more tax averse. they favor small role for government. in a campaign which role of government and taxes and spending are the key issues, this breakdown is not surprising. what is interesting is that the gender gap has been around a long time. which size is able to maximize its gender better and hold its own among the other? what we are
the drum and say this is there a guy. but i think you will see that after tomorrow, obama's numbers will probably get even stronger. it's a shame they did this to us. if you had a strong candidates like ron paul, obama would not be able to stand on that stage. host: this on twitter -- we are getting comments coming to us from facebook -- ken edgett in dallas, texas, independent. -- kenneth in dallas. caller: i am strictly an independent thinker. i am going to watch the debate probably when i get off work. my thought is this, when is this country going to wake up and stop losing american lives and the whole middle east is ridiculous. it is in worse shape than it was 10 years ago. $3 trillion in debt and each side points to the other guy. the democrats were in control for four years, two under bush and two under obama, yet it was all bush's fault and nobody takes responsibility. that's the problem. the voters need to take responsibility and get rid of every one of the incumbents, it's maybe not in this election, but if they don't get this country straightened out and get the economy s

he's an angry rich man. >> bob: come up with the numbers you talk about. obama has to defend numbers but so does romney. >> eric: what number does he have to defend? >> bob: how he will cut taxes and balance the budget? >> dana: he has a good answer. obama has a tougher time explaining how in 2008, he ran on one thing regarding taxes. in 2010 he changed his mind to protect his tail. then now his whole plan is against what he said in 2010, is worst thing to do for the country. >> bob: that debate has been out there and argued over and over for four years. the question is how romney says he will, not going to lose money cutting taxes because he is going to take away loopholes. he refuses to answer one question about the loophole. obama will push him. he should. >> greg: mitt has to say why did you cancel pipeline with 8.2% unemployment? >> bob: i'll answer if that if you answer which loopholes you will cut? >> dana: there you go again. >> bob: simple question, what loopholes are you going to cut on wealthy people? coming up, president obama uses heavy, heavy hollywood hitters in a new
's number one priority. president obama preparing for tomorrow's debate but in nevada. he has not made any campaign appearances since sunday. romney says he would not deport any undocumented immigrants in the u.s. because of an executive order the president signed. they can stay for two years if they came before they were 16, are still 30 or younger, and meet other criteria. romney criticized the president for signing that executive order during an election year. he also said he would veto a bill that would grant a path to citizenship. >>> strong attacks coming from both sides, but now some residents in roanoke, virginia, say one anti-obama display goes too far. a man named curtis caldwell put up a statue on his front lawn that is a monkey wearing an obama mask. then it says no 'bama and a confederate flag. >> not trying to say obama is an ape or nothing. if i had a kangaroo, i'd put a kangaroo up there. i had a monkey. i bought that long ago in florida. i think we need to get him out of office. that's the primary thing i'm trying to say, get this man out of office. >> caldwell says he use

with the romney-ryan plan or it's four more years of barack obama. so even obama did get some good economic news. >> these job numbers show that the president has recovered every single job lost on his watch and then some. that makes the president a net job creator. >> stephen: there it is. obama is a net job creator. so congratulations to robert baird, the guy who got the job. (laughter) but millions of americans are still looking for work. particularly low skilled workers with no high school diploma who face a 12% unemployment rate. now my heart goes out to those blue color workers. all they know how to do is make stuff while we white collar workers have the education necessary to check our e-mail. the problem is, america has lost its good manufacturing jobs to places of cheap unregulated labor like china, vietnam, and the gulag beneath disney world. faster, chakor, they're running out of mickey pretzels. now how-- how is the u.s.-- mickey.

greek 100. it is so good. ♪ >>> they're prepping, coaching and studying for debate number one. president obama and mitt romney getting ready for wednesday night's face-off. it takes place in denver. both men facing challenges. neither is known for being a stellar debater. aides say the president doesn't like to talk in sound bites and can come off as patronizing. romney's advisers say he can sound out of touch with the voters. the topic this time is domestic policy ask the moderator is news hour host jim lehrer. >>> a victim of the aurora theater shooting is calling on mitt romney and president obama to address gun control during the debate. >> it was this past summer in a movie theater, i was shot in the face and neck. >> that's stephen barton featured in a new national tv ad paid for by a group called united against illegal gun support fund. the group says it is disappointed about. the candidates haven't addressed gun violence in a concrete and specific way. it is unlikely that topic will be brought up unless the question comes from the moderator. critics point out the weapons used in

together for obama. he's in re-elect territory. >> guys, the numbers don't back that up. our second quarter growth number was 1.3, wasn't it? i mean, how do you get -- why are they saying it's better? >> but chris, the people who study this kind of thing and try to correlate economic numbers with election results will tell you that the numbers were good enough in the second and third quarter in terms of growth of real personal income in the country to correlate to a victory for incumbent president. >> wow. >> no, the numbers have been improving, slightly. housing numbers are improving. real growth is there, although not robust. it's a matter of timing. it's a matter of whether the president can get enough good numbers and enough inching up of optimism and views of his job performance in time to cross the finish line ahead where he is right now. what's holding mitt romney back is that this are 3%, 4%, 5% of the people who don't trust him as an alternative and they're undecided. >> thank you so much. chuck todd, the great chuck todd and great howard fineman. >>> republicans in pennsylvania th
he's out of touch with the middle class. you'll hear the number 47 as often as obama can get it into the debate. >> you think he can come off as aloof. when you look at the polls, the one thing he's consistently exceeded mitt romney at is likability. >> right. yet he does have -- it's partly it's proffesorial. when he looks like john kennedy he's on an upslope. he's not so good when he thinks he is way ahead and konts respect an opponent. i have a hunch he is hearing that from his folks in that room in nevada saying, you can't make a mistake like that. >> part of it is who you compare him to. he's aloof compared to bill clinton. bill clinton has a touch. >> everyone is aloof compared to bill clinton. >> exactly. >> let's talk about mitt romney. strengths, weakness. >> mitt romney's strength is that he is, comes across as competent, as a capable human being. as somebody who projects an air of authority, especially when he talks about the economy. that is the private sector track record. the flip side, the weakness is the 47%. some of the attacks he's taken in terms of that bus
. national numbers show obama leading by two to four points. some polls have it it a little bit more. it's in the swing states particularly critical ohio where the obama lead appears to be four- to eight-points, something in that range. there are two possible regulations. one is state-specific factors that are affecting voters in those states. for example, in virginia and ohio, a better-than-average national economy. but the other conclusion it seems to me that you have to arrive at is campaigns matter. the obama folks are running a good campaign with good ads, good messaging in these swing states. >> woodruff: that's where they're putting all these efforts. >> they're running more ads. they ran more ads in the spring. they had more money to run ads in the summer. that was a time when they were really attacking governor romney trying to undermine his credentials on the economy. the romney campaign for financial reasons and also following their own strategy didn't respond as fully. didn't spend as much money on ads as the obama group did. this is a good bet that the obama campaign is thin
've only spent about half as much as the obama campaign had. that number has rampd up dramatically. they say they're going to do a full ad blitz in the last month. they introduced a new ad today which attacks president obama for leaving a $6 trillion national they say for the children and grandchildren. they talk about, this is the spanish-language ad, they talk about how this is going to be a debt they're going to have to pay. they've also come up with some ads where they talk, where you have hispanic voters talking about why they feel disappointed in president obama. where they feel that his promises were not kept. so those are some of the things we're starting to see from them. things that seem a little bit more artful, that some analysts have told me that they think actually are more on the mark, might have more resonance with the hispanic comnity >> woodruff: very quickly. contrast that with the message coming out from the obama camp to the hispanic electorate there >> well, the obama campaign has enlisted the hispanic oprah, she's done a series of ads that have been very effe
obama and then put into the majority leadership of the senate a man who says his number one agenda is to frustrate president obama. you also have scott brown literally raising money with an e-mail that says send me money so i can help check the obama agenda. so you have his recognition that what he plans to do is -- you talk about credibility for him to claim he hasn't made up his mind for majority leader is literally noncredible. the other issue is when he was asked who were his best supreme court justices, his first mention was sko lee ya. i think as you sat there, you could see him say to himself, maybe that wasn't the best thing to say. he claims to be supportive of the women's right to choose. he believes in equality for lgbt people. and the first word out of his mouth when asked about supreme court justices is a ferve rent opponent of all those causes. scott brown when asked on issues, i have an open mind on this. well, i think he's kind of crossing the line from independent into incoherence and it's because he understands that if he were to say what he really plans to vote,
. the numbers on the medicare question particularly among seniors has shifted dramatically in obama's direction in just a month after ryan was initially picked. you'll recall they went very hard on medicare. they decided to run to their weakness, and they started to basically just lying or at least being incredibly dishonest saying that obama is going to do this and had cut 700 billion in change when, in fact ryan had cut the same amount in his budget proposal. you saw a little tightening when ryan was picked for the ticket, but the numbers have gone overwhelmingly in the other direction. seniors are now very much supporting obama in these swing states, and if you look at that medicare question its devastating for romney and ryan. >> cenk: last word on this, and if noam is right and i've seen the polls, and he is right going further right didn't work. you can't really criticize president from the left, i don't think you can if you're republican. what do they have left? >> they don't have states to run to, and i think they've played that chess game. i think he's inextricably tied to ryan, and i
when you see being rising number of casualties commack and as they continue to rise throughout the surge and now, the surge troops, which president obama sent in the first year of his presidency, they are now on their way out, but the number of casualties continues to rise. the consequences will be the same when we pull out the troops last week, as i would have preferred, or at the end of 2014. unfortunately, there will almost certainly be a violent struggle for power in afghanistan, very much like what happened after a foreign occupation ended. in that case, when the soviet union pulled out, there was a six-year civil war until the taliban eventually won the war with the support of the population because they promised to bring an end to the war. when will this mean politically? we do not know. the fact that the u.s. says they are not prepared to go for an efforts to bring the taliban into peace talks, does not bode well for the possibility of the war ending sooner rather than later. what we know is that all wars, and as you said, the longest war in u.s. history -- every war an
